For those of us more concerned with quickly capturing that 'Kodak moment' or snapping shots at a family party than fussing about with lenses and exposure times, a basic digital camera is really all we need.

This in-depth test looks at the picture quality, ease of use and basic functionality offered by a number of different models, to help you decide which camera will best suit your needs.

Not sure what all the specs mean, or the features you'll need? Our digital camera buying guide and other camera guides focus on the basics and give you expert advice on what to look for when shopping for a camera.
